Living Wage Big Box Ordinance Passes in Chicago Over Fierce Corporate Opposition

Chicago, 27.07.2006 20:34

On Wednesday, the Chicago City Council approved an ordinance that will require Big Box retailers to pay workers a living wage — an initiative that economic justice activists say hails a new day in the battle to get large corporations like Wal-Mart to scale back their exploitation of workers.

After a fierce months-long battle between supporters and opponents of the effort, the Chicago City Council voted 35 to 14 to approve the ordinance. The veto-proof majority represents a rare departure by aldermen from the wishes of Mayor Daley, who has vigorously opposed the initiative. The new ordinance mandates a $10 minimum hourly wage and $3 an hour in fringe benefits, with annual indexing for inflation for big box retail stores of 90,000 feet and up that have gross annual sales of $1 billion. Full story.

Save the Cemetery Chapel

United Kingdom, 27.07.2006 17:08

Legions of the undead are due to take to the streets of Sheffield on Friday, 28th July in response to a call out for a zombie protest against the plans to develop the derelict Chapel in the General Cemetery into a family home. Earlier in the month there was a Save the Cemetery protest party [ Photos ], over 3,500 people have signed the petition against the development and lots of objections have been lodged with the Council. An alternative plan is being developed by the Friends of the General Cemetery and this involves both the Anglican Chapel and the Non Conformist Chapel being turned into a new home for the Sheffield Music Service.

The General Cemetery has been used for Peace in the Park for the last two years (2006 and 2005) and it has been the end point for the Sharrow Lantern Carnival for the last three years (2006, 2005, 2004) -- the fear is that if the Chapel is turned into a private home events of this type will no longer be allowed -- the protestors want to see a public use for the building not a private one.



Crisis In The Middle East : Newswire Round-Up

David Yassky and Black Power

NYC, 27.07.2006 15:38

Yassky's decision to run represents the changing demographics of the community. As white people are being priced out of Manhattan, they are moving into Central Brooklyn in alarming numbers. Indeed, watching out the window of my Parkside Brooklyn flat, I often see moving trucks with yuppies coming in increasing numbers. So it's a difficult question. As a communist, I know no politician can be trusted; but on the other hand the question of gentrification particularly in historic Black communities is a concern. I think we have to look at the Yassky run as a serious question. [Read More]



US/Israeli Destruction Of Lebanon World Outraged, Most Governments Complicit

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.07.2006 15:09

The international conference in Rome held July 26th to address the destruction of Lebanon ended without a call for a ceasefire. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice stood virtually alone in opposing any language in the conference statement suggesting that the Israeli onslaught, which has already caused close to 500 civilian deaths and destroyed much of the country's infrastructure, should be ended any time soon.

Israel says the decision by a summit of world powers not to call for a halt to its Lebanon offensive has given it the green light to continue its attacks. "We received yesterday at the Rome conference permission from the world... to continue the operation," Israeli Justice Minister Haim Ramon told the press.

Israel Bombs UN Compound, US Blocks Condemnation

San Francisco Bay Area, 27.07.2006 14:40

On Tuesday July 25th, Israel bombed a UN compound in South Lebanon killing Canadian, Finnish, Austrian and Chinese nationals. The UN warned Israel with at least 10 separate telephone that repeated aerial and artillery attacks had already landed at or dangerously close to their post in Khiam and an internal UN report on the incident says there were more than 20 aerial and artillery attacks on the post on Tuesday, including four artillery rounds that directly hit the UN position an hour before the fatal guided bomb attack. The report also said that, each time the UN called to complain, the Israeli officer they talked to promised that the attacks would stop but the strikes continued.
Kofi Annan, the United Nations secretary general, condemned Israel, saying he was shocked by the "apparently deliberate targeting" of the post, and called for it to investigate the incident.
On Wednesday, the US blocked the U.N. Security Council from issuing a statement that would have condemned the bombing as much of the right-wing Israeli media used Annan's condemnation as an excuse to lash out at the UN.

palestine journal: 27 july - where were those two soldiers captured, anyway?

Portland, 27.07.2006 11:38

as israel's dual invasions of lebanon and gaza continue to spiral out of control, several people have asked me, "where were those two soldiers captured, anyway?", referring to the capture of two israeli soldiers by hezbollah fighters on july 12th, the event that supposedly set this whole thing off......

well, the answer, for my part, is, it's really not clear. hezbollah and the lebanese government claim that the soldiers were captured inside lebanon, near Ayta al-Sha`b village 60 km north of the Israeli border. the israeli government says the two were captured near the israeli town zar'it, directly along the israel-lebanon border.

what IS clear, and what i know from personal experience, is that israel controls that border. and their 'routine patrols' very often venture quite deep into lebanese territory.



PDX City Council Hears Speaker Urging Passage of Impeachment Resolution

Portland, 27.07.2006 11:38

I make a living with my hands. But this I know: If I come into this chamber, I have a duty to tell the truth. Honesty in the workplace is also required. George Bush was not honest with Congress and the American people when he made his case for war. Nor was he honest about his secret domestic spy program. It is an impeachable high crime to provide false information to Congress.

On March 18, 2003 Bush sent a letter to Congress stating his reason for Iraq war. It was, to take "actions against those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001". But later that year in September, Bush admitted: "We've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with September the 11th."



Global Warming's Gathering Storm

My insurance company and I just had a little "brush" with global warming.

I was driving my son to his karate class and noticed that the sky in the west where we were heading was incredibly dark. Since the sun was setting in that direction, the darkness of the clouds was particularly ominous.

I switched on the radio and heard an alert about severe thunderstorms in a broad front that was moving quickly across the eastern U.S. from Virginia up into New York.



Supporters of Israel Suggest: To End Terrorism, Support Terrorism

Portland, 27.07.2006 11:38

I went to the rally at Pioneer Square today with questions in my mind.

Who would actually support the indiscriminate bombing of civilian targets in the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict?

Who in their right mind would support the targeting of hospitals, ambulances, and UN outposts?

Who would stand up and affirm the right of a well-funded and well-armed nation to knowingly participate in the mass slaughter of innocent Lebonese people. Of their children?

AUDIO FILE: From Pioneer Square Pro Israel Rally

There were no surprises coming from the speakers supporting Israeli actions in Lebanon. Most of the audio file are remarks from the Oregon Delegation to Washington D.C. Representatives Earl Blumenauer, Darlen Hooley, and David Wu sent their support of Israel, as did Governor Kulingowski, and Senators Wyden and Smith.

All decried the actions of Hezbollah and condemned terrorism, calling for the successful defeat of both. Nothing was mentioned of state terrorism. Nothing was mentioned of the western terrorist creating machine recently placed in Iraq and now in Lebanon. There was a large amount of flag waving, often Israeli flags backed with the U.S. flag; little flags, big flags, waved by adults and children.

The bombs are being flown from the US to Israel for use in the war in Lebannon and possibly for a wider war.

The U.S. is helping to destroy Lebanon in its tacit support of Israel.

Arkansas, 26.07.2006 15:10

The Israeli leaders who launched this month's state-of-the-killing-art air assault on Gaza and Lebanon had to know that many civilians would be killed, many others wounded, many more terrorized. The smug moral posturing that Israel's military does not target specific civilians is moldy political grist -- and, in human terms, irrelevant to the totally predictable carnage.

Sąd nie wziął pod uwagę żadnych okoliczności łagodzących - ani tego, że oskarzony działał w samoobronie, ani tego, że od wielu lat był regularnie atakowany przez lokalnych skinheadów. Jego samoobrona została uznana za umyślne spowodowanie zabójstwa, został skazany na 15 lat pozbawienia wolności, choć niewątpliwie należał do grupy młodocianych, i w analogicznych sprawach zapadają w Polsce o wiele niższe wyroki (zazwyczaj dodatkowo skracane dzięki uzyskaniu przez zatrzymanych dobrej opinii etc).

USAF Plane Disarmed in Shannon Ireland, Pitstop Ploughsare found not guilty

Portland, 26.07.2006 10:08

In the early hours of Monday 3 February 2003, five members of the pacifist Catholic Worker Movement ( 2 ) cut their way into Shannon Airport ( 2 ). The peace activists poured human blood on the runway that has been servicing U.S. military flights, troop and munition deployments to U.S. military bases in Kuwait and Qatar. They constructed a shrine on the runway to Iraqi children killed and threatened by U.S./British bombardment and sanctions. The shrine consisted of copies of the Bible and Quran, rosary and muslim prayer beads, flowers, photographs of Iraqi children and Brigid's crosses. They then began to take up the runway, working on its edge with a mallet.



Worldwide Protests Against Israeli Aggression

Portland, 26.07.2006 10:08

Tens of thousands throughout the world took to the street on Saturday, July 22nd, to protest against the ongoing Israeli war on Lebanon and Palestine. For the past 12 days and nights, Israeli air forces have destroyed countless civilian buildings and means of transportation in operations that have killed more than 400 people, mostly civilians, and wrecked havoc on Lebanese cities, harbours, airports and other infrastructure, leading to the displacement of more than half a million people. The International Day of Action had been called by various anti-war and solidarity campaigns.

In Israel itself, at least 5,000 Jewish and Arab peace activists marched in Tel Aviv against Israel's war crimes. Israeli police arrest 3 anti-war protesters [Israeli bombardment of Lebanon violates humanitarian law].

In Chicago, US, some 3,000 people from the Muslim, Arab and progressive community took part in one of the city's largest protests against Israeli aggression since the beginning of the Second Intifada.

In the UK, up to 30,000 marched through central London. Similar, but smaller, demonstrations took place in other cities up and down the country, including Manchester, Sheffield, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Other Erupoean cities also saw some big protests: Paris, Amsterdam, Bremen, Warsaw and others. Some 10,000 people had demonstrated in Madrid on July 20th, and so had people in Rome, Athens, Stockholm and Canada [report].

In Australia, thousands of people turned out at rallies in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, while a gathering in Perth was cancelled by the police.
